    If you're planning to line up for gas Saturday, better check your license plate first.

    New Jersey is moving to an odd-even gas rationing system in 12 counties starting at noon.

    Gov. Chris Christie ordered the odd-even system late Friday.

    He says it will help ease fuel shortages and extended lines for gasoline that have occurred since a superstorm decimated the coast this week.

    Residents with license plates ending in an even number will be able to buy gas on even-numbered days and residents with plates ending in an odd number can make gas purchases on odd-numbered days.

    The order is in effect for the counties of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren.
